Mapping Of Research Capability Front Cover2The report acknowledges Alcis as a regular research partner of DFID/FCO, recognising the multiple studies Alcis has undertaken to remotely determine agricultural and livelihood conditions through interrogation of geospatial data.

It also references the recent Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) funded study of Helmand of which Alcis used an innovative approach to analyse whether reductions in opium cultivation were sustainable within the context of Helmand livelihoods.

The DfID research mapping report presents results of a September 2011 study commissioned by the Department for International Development (DFID)'s South Asia Research Hub (SARH) and DFID-Afghanistan (DFID-A) to map research capacity in Afghanistan and identify gaps in research and analysis which would be valuable to Afghan and international development partners.
